James Copley has reacted to some news which has now emerged involving Sunderland co-owner Juan Sartori.
The Lowdown: Monaco role
Should Sunderland have hired Neil?
He also has a 20% stake in the Stadium of Light club, having initially stepped down as a director after Kyril Louis-Dreyfus bought a majority shareholding earlier last year.
The Latest: Copley reacts
Taking to Twitter, Copley has given his reaction to the update, claiming that ‘you have to wonder’ when Sartori is going to get around to Sunderland, should he accept the role at Monaco. The journalist said:
“Interesting reports regarding Sunderland co-owner Juan Sartori and the potential for more involvement at AS Monaco.
“If true, you have to wonder when he’s going to get around to Sunderland, in which he owns a 20 percent stake.”
The Verdict: No distractions
If Sartori is to have a more prominent position at Monaco, then he should not let it distract from the work that he is doing at Sunderland.
Currently just holding onto a play-off spot in League One, new manager Alex Neil will want money to invest in the squad in the summer, especially if they do not make it out of the division.
Sartori does show his support for the club, having visited the ground on a semi-regular basis, and he will need to maintain that in order to maintain the faith of the fans.
